My coursework arrived today for Introducing Astronomy through the OU – very excited!  It’s going to be a BIG learning curve and looks like it’s going to take a fair amount of brainpower … but I think I’m going to really enjoy it!

All I need to do know is polish off my Digital Photography coursework (just a final panel of images and accompanying written document to submit) and I’ll be ready to focus completely on Astronomy.
